Be a Beauty Insider at Sephora
For those of you who shop at Sephora you are probably already familiar with their Sephora Beauty Insiders program. But in case this is new to you, let me take a minute to explain how it works. It is completely free to sign up and when you do you will receive a points card. And then, for every dollar you spend, you earn a point.
They have fairly good sized samples available as perks that you can spend 100 points on. Or, if you feel like saving up your points, you can wait and get the 500 point perk which is a complete set of items (usually a mix and match of full size and travel size products). The perks and rewards change frequently, so if you aren’t crazy about what you see that visit, don’t worry, the next one might be something you are dying to try. I myself have been waiting for a few months as I wasn’t all that interested in the past couple 500 point perks that came out, but then I saw this in my email – announcing the new 500 point reward:
Finally! Something I would actually use and better yet, a brand that I have little to no experience with. So I went into Sephora yesterday to spend my 500 points and get my new kit from tarte.
This is called the “Intro to Amazonian Clay try me kit” and in it you will find:
- Amazonian clay bronzer in Park Ave Princess
- Smooth operator Amazonian clay finishing powder
- emphasEYES high definition eye pencil in black (full size)
- ReCreate silicone-free primer with wrinkle rewind technology
- LipSurgence matte lip tint in Lively (full size)
I of course wanted to do a couple of swatches for you guys in case you are debating spending your points on this perk, or simply wondering if tarte is for you.
***Please note: the emphasEYES high definition eye pencil is actually labelled as a long wearing inner rim eye pencil. It is extremely resistant to any and all smudging. I actually had to go at this swatch on my hand twice with the makeup remover to get it to budge. I can’t wait to try it out on my water line.***
***I found this product really creamy, smooth and easy to apply. I also didn’t find it drying at all, it kept my lips nice and moisturised. And NO, this is not a one of those dreaded sticky lip products! And to top it all off, when I removed it, my lips felt soft and smooth. I’ll definitely be looking at their other colours next time I am in store.***
I hope you found this post informative in one way or another. At the very least make sure the next time you are in a Sephora that you sign up for the points card if you haven’t already – and start earning your points now!
